TWTW - the last one with the paint, lord I hope

Friday afternoon and evening errands had me ready to cut a bitch. Chill. Everyone. I got some new nail polish (OPI My Private Jet, Meet Me on the Star-Ferry, and This Color's Making Waves), picked up DiBruno goods for Sunday, and went to my second home (Sherwin Williams) after work.
We were lounging at the shore by 9. I fell asleep on the couch soon after and woke up at 5:19 for the day. Blah.

Saturday there was a Nor'Easter at the shore so it was a good day to paint. MFD and I painted together for the first time in 14 years and survived. We touched up paint on the third floor and painted the stairwell on the way up, then trim paint on the main floor. Everything movable from the top floor had to be put in a second floor bedroom for carpet replacement that's happening today.
I sought out sustenance at Wawa after that, which is only mentioned because I had to walk through this to get there.
Hark! I actually took a nap Saturday. That never happens. I was tired from going up and down the stairs and painting and moving shit and crying my eyes out over E.T. the movie. After that we took a rainy ride down to see the ocean and ride along the boardwalk.
We had dinner at Luigi's - the restaurant itself has been there forever, but it's under new owners as of March. Same name. The food was excellent and everything is made in house. 
I didn't fall asleep until close to 1, so no 5 am wakeup for the sunrise. It felt nice to sleep in. We did a bunch of clean up upstairs from the painting and installed the one air conditioner that was out for the winter. Then we took a glorious bike ride on the boards. Everyone and their mother (literally) was out, beautiful water, surfers surfing. We had lunch at the Bashful Banana.
Then it was crying time. Nothing puts me in a bad mood like leaving the shore on a gorgeous day. MFD drove home which meant I had to read to not die of fright. Poor Geege is always someone's pillow or seat. 
Weekly food prep is happening tomorrow: Breakfast is scrambled eggs topped with broccoli, snacks are blackberries or carrots with hummus, lunch is salmon spinach salad, and dinners are turkey taco lettuce wraps and garlic naan pizzas. In the 25 minutes I was home I assembled a little cheese appetizer to take to Aubrey & Stephen's. Thanks DiBruno.
I celebrated Mother's Day at Stephen & Aubrey's with Mom, Rich, Swan, Pop, Debbie, and Aub's family. It was a lovely day and the food was delicious. MFD went to his Mom's. I am seeing Carol for lunch in the city when we can get a good day. I got home around 8 and painted my nails (OPI My Private Jet) and called it a day. We were all tired. 



Nothing says Monday like an 8:30 a.m. dentist appointment followed by a meeting in which half of my face will not work thanks to Novocaine, am I right?

  3. Oh painting with the husband.....eeep! We're in the midst of all the painting and redoing and it's nice to take a LONG break out of the house when we paint together.

  4. I'm glad you survived the painting. That's always dicey over here. I wish I could read in the car but it gives me a headache. When Matt drives us anywhere more than half an hour away or so, I try to fall asleep. It's terrifying.

  5. I would have wanted to take a nap after waking up at 5 on Saturday morning too! I'm glad that you were still able to make it Wawa, despite the lake you had to cross to get there!

  7. Lord that's one hell of a puddle.
    Geege is the most adorably patient lackey I've ever seen. I can't get enough.

  8. My Private Jet is one of my faves! I have it in both regular polish and gel polish!

    Also, that flooding is legit! Hope there wasn't any damage at your place!

  9. Both cheese/salami app plates (at the restaurant and home) look so good - That is one of my favorite easy Sunday night meals, plus wine obviously.

  10. ET is always a tear jerker!!!
    Nope - me & my hub would never survive painting together. He's so anal about corners & edging. its not like I TRY to get paint on edges. Geez.

  11. All the meat and cheese, give me!!! So glad that you guys survived painting together. That could be a real close one, you know? Your Luigi's meal looks so good! Geege does look like a great pug pillow. Poor guy! Hope you have a great week!

  17. Love the nail colors you picked out. Oh my the flooding looks crazy!! A kayak would have come in handy to get to Wawa. lol

  18. Your food at Luigi's looks sooo good! So does the snack plate you made for Mother's Day. I can't believe that flooding. I also can't believe you can read in the car.

  19. Love all those OPI colors! The food looks so Awesome!

  20. I'm obsessed with that stairway color. It's basically my entire house. HOW OR WHY DID IT FLOOD SO MUCH?! Luigi's looks extra tasty. I need some of that right about now.

  21. Love that nail color. And I love that Geege is always someone's seat. HAHAHA!
    Painting is the WORST. We just discussed how we'd like to paint the hall/landing by our backdoor. By "like" I mean we'd like it painted... but we're dreading doing it. Lol
